The more time you spend inside a classroom, the less time you’re in the real world.

This is the dilemma most of us face, as we grow up. The accumulation of book smarts results in a lack of street smarts, and vice versa. So, the question becomes: how do we manage our time? How do we best equip ourselves to master both the interpersonal and intellectual languages?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the balance of street smarts and book smarts. When we lean too heavily in one direction, our skills become lopsided and as a result, our career trajectory may flatten.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how to manage these sometimes opposing forces, so you can maximize your potential!

The to-do list is infinite.

From business matters to personal chores, we can find something to do at any given moment. This nonstop treadmill will take us through our lives if we don’t make a conscientious effort to get off. When we take breaks, we can then create the space in our minds to generate new ideas, that will create new and more exciting to-do lists.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the elements of human behavior. When we drill down the core essence of what it means to be human, we can then navigate our day-to-day in a more thoughtful manner.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn these fundamentals, so you can start to draw up your most creative business ideas!

People lie, but numbers don’t.

As our businesses and brands grow, we attract more and more people into our network. These individuals will have things to say about our success, and if we’re not careful, we can become distracted by that external noise and lose focus of what’s actually important.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are debating a hater online. When we acknowledge the peanut gallery, we gain insight into the lapses in judgement in those around us. Thus, we are able to move forward with a more accurate vision for our future.

Learning doesn’t mean school.

But we grow up thinking that books, worksheets, and homework is the only way to learn something. So we spend our days trying to cram information into our brains via a system that doesn’t work.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the best way to learn: by shadowing someone else. When we go the opposite way of school, we tap into our human instincts like osmosis, and are able to learn with an ease we’ve never felt before.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how why this is so valuable, so you can shift your education efforts in that direction.
